Their full description of the UE40C7000 reads…
The Samsung UE40C7000 brings the 3D experience to your living room. Its explosive Full HD 3D imagery simply bursts from the screen to put you in the action. To watch in 3D you’ll need a pair of Samsung 3D glasses (available separately) and access to 3D content e.g. a 3D blu-ray player (available separately).
This remarkable Samsung LED TV is less than 3cm thin and yet packs in a whole host of advanced technology. Its slim dimensions are made possible by LED backlighting technology. LED lights use much less energy than standard LCD and offer more precise control of colour, contrast and clarity.
This TV features an integrated Freeview HD tuner which will allow you to watch subscription-free HD broadcasts. To watch Freeview HD broadcasts you’ll need to check that you can receive it in your area. Click here to find out more about Freeview HD.
A Full HD 1080p resolution and the Samsung HyperReal Engine deliver dazzling images with rich colour and vivid details. It’s a great choice for sports and action movies thanks to 200Hz Motion Plus processing which analyses and adjusts every frame so nothing goes by in a blur. The Ultra Clear Panel is also able to reduce reflection and increase contrast for a better picture.
The UE40C7000 sounds great too with SRS Theatre Sound. Its realistic audio envelopes you with rich, stunning surround sound. And with discreetly hidden speakers, it’s all about the big picture.
Using Allshare (powered by DLNA) you’ll be able to transfer videos, music and photos from your compatible PC or mobile device wirelessly and effortlessly. A USB port allows you to directly connect devices and display photos and video. It’s also Personal Video Recorder ready so you can plug in a high speed USB memory drive into the USB port and record your favourite shows in HD.
Another exciting feature is Internet@TV which provides a gateway to a multitude of entertainment ranging from video, music, social networking, news and games content. Simply connect to the internet via Ethernet cable or the Samsung wireless LAN adaptor (available separately).
Full HD 1080p
1080p is the purest form of high definition that a television can display. This leads to a smoother, more film-like image, which will satisfy sports and movie lovers alike. With a 1080p signal, the information that makes up an image is displayed “progressively” or all at once, rather than in an “interlaced” fashion.
LCD TVs featuring LED backlighting have greater contrast ratios – blacks appear blacker – leading to a sharper image. They are also slimmer, consume less power than similarly-sized traditional LCDs and are mercury free.
So, if you can’t wait to get your hands on the 40-inch UE40C7000 3D techno-marvel, from Samsung, place your order here, sit back and relax… delivery’s free and it should be just in time for the World Cup!
